A man from Baxter County, Arkansas has been arrested and charged with assault for allegedly stabbing his brother as he tried to break up a domestic disturbance between the man and his wife.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says deputies were called by the owner of Bayou Resort shortly before 8 p.m. last night (02-12-11) who said there was a man who had been stabbed on his porch.

As officers approached a cabin where the suspected stabber was supposed to be hiding, one of them spotted the suspect hiding in the woods in back of the cabin.  After a brief chase, Travis John Clary, 26, of Gamaliel was arrested.

At the time of his arrest, Clary had blood on his pants and appeared intoxicated.  A double edged dagger, believed to be the weapon used in the stabbing, was found outside the cabin.  The sheath for the knife was inside the dwelling, which was in complete disarray.

Twenty seven year-old Timothy J. Clary was transported by private vehicle to Baxter Regional Hospital with a single stab wound to the stomach.
Travis Clary, who is also facing charges of domestic battery and fleeing an officer, is being held in the Baxter County jail on $50,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on March 10th.
